The Gröna Lund Park And Entertainment Center, Sweden

The plan's not official yet but there's a huge possibility that we will be visiting Gröna Lund in the summer of 2013 and not this year *tsk tsk*.  Considered as Sweden's oldest park and entertainment center, Gröna Lund is the place to be when in search of fun rides and great attractions for family and friends!

Gröna Lund is located near Skansken in Stockholm. If you are interested to include Gröna Lund in your itinerary while on vacation in Sweden, you can visit their website here.

Don't speak Swedish? You can always have the website translated into English here which will open a PDF file for you. The only problem is, this PDF file doesn't work for me [maybe for you, too] so to give you some heads up on what to expect in Gröna Lund, here are a few facts in English that you might find helpful:

Entrance Fee [Ordinary days]:

Kids below 7 years old: Always FREE

Ages 7-64 [from 12 June to 15 August]: 90 SEK [Swedish crowns]

Ages 7-64 [other days]: 80 SEK

65 and above: Always FREE

Entrance Fee [Concert Nights]:

Kids below 7 years old: Always FREE

Ages 7-64 [from 6PM to 8.30PM]: 150 SEK

65 and above: Always FREE

Reminder: If you are up for those amazing rides and other attractions in Gröna Lund, I suggest you get the purchase the Åkband [pronouned as: ok-band --- or the ride band/bracelet] instead of buying one ticket per ride/attraction. Here are the prices of each Åkband:

Åkband: 289 SEK - gives you the ticket to unlimited ride/attraction passes the whole day through

Åkband Kväll: 210 SEK - unlimited ride/attraction passes from 7PM

Åkband Plus: 319 SEK - unlimited ride/attraction passes for the whole day. This includes a pass to the Ghost House

Attractions:

There are 31 rides, shows and displays that await you in Gröna Lund. Included in the 31 attractions are the Blue Train, Circus Carousel, The Flying Elephants, The Love Tunnel, The Rock Jet, The Ghost House, Tea Cups, The Flying Carpet, The Free Fall, The Insane, Jetline, The Pop Express, The Extreme and many more!
